Staff portal IGN published an article revealing the reasons of dismissal of the original Creator of Plants vs. Zombies George Fan from Electronic Arts. As reported by his close friend Edmund McMillen developer responsible for Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, George was fired because of his attitude towards microtransactions. Or rather, unfair to the model of Pay-to-Win. The fan, according to the man, flatly refused to enter it in your new game.
McMillen told the love the Fan belonged to Plants vs. Zombies and how he was upset when in 2011 it bought the Studio PopCap, the publisher EA is urgently required to begin to create the sequel and add microtransactions. In response, George Fan said, that such changes do not like and that he is against such practices in games. According to McMillen, right after the Fan “was in the bar”, Electronic Arts boss promptly threw him out PopCap.
For confirmation of information, the editors IGN addressed directly to the Fan, which promised soon to fully explain the whole situation. Shortly thereafter, the developer wrote on his Twitter page that the representatives of the EA have really fired him from PopCap and that he really was against the introduction of microtransactions in Plants vs. Zombies 2. However, the exact evidence that these facts are somehow connected, George Fan is not provided.
According to the portal Kotaku, before retiring from PopCap Fan did not work on a sequel to Plants vs. Zombies, and was engaged in absolutely other projects. Information provided the regular “detective” Kotaku’s Jason Schreier recently exposed the charlatan for years pretending to be an employee of Electronic Arts.
